Genomic Solutions to Install Proteomics Software at Four Sites

NEW YORK, Nov 7 – Genomic Solutions of Ann Arbor, Mich., said Tuesday it would install its new proteomics data integration software, Protein Warehouse, at four early access sites during fourth-quarter 2000.

Genomic Solutions did not name the four sites or disclose the financial terms of the deals.

Protein Warehouse tracks data from all experimental protocols down to the protein feature level. It is desingned to capture various aspects of proteomics data, including gel image and amino acid sequences.

Protein Warehouse uses an SQL engine as its core database. The application integrates data collection, central storage, querying, and reporting into one environment. Its multi-user, multi-project environment is intended to speed data entry and ensure data integrity.

The company said the product would be widely available in the first quarter of 2001.
